Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Adeolu Okusaga, known as Saga, opens up about the challenges of entering the Nollywood industry as a reality TV star.

Saga also speaks about the impact his late mother had on him and his desire to make a positive impact on his generation. He emphasizes the importance of teaching children empathy, kindness, and sharing so they understand that life is not just about themselves.
Breaking into Nollywood as a reality TV star is challenging, according to former Big Brother Naija (Shine Ya Eye) housemate, Adeolu Okusaga, also known as Saga.
Saga shared with Saturday Beats, “I have acted in a few movies. It was tough breaking into Nollywood because most Nollywood practitioners don’t want us to feel entitled just because we were on Big Brother’s House. So, one has to earn it somehow. It may be difficult, but eventually, one will make progress step by step.”
He also spoke about the influence his late mother had on him, saying, “My mum always did charity work, and as a kid, it used to tire me out. She would take me along for the ones she did in the church and personal ones too. So, I want to have that kind of impact on my generation as well.”
According to Saga, one’s upbringing plays a significant role in shaping their perspective on life. He stated, “Kids should be taught empathy, kindness, and sharing, so they understand that life is not just about them. If others have less than what they have, it doesn’t make them lesser. These are essential values that children should receive from their parents.”
